Why rainforests are called "rainforests"

did you ever wonder why rainforests are

called rain forests well it's not a joke

they actually create rain lots of little

chemical compounds go out from their

leaves and they create scenes which

creates the rain that falls on

rainforests vast quantities of it they

recycle that of moisture eight trillion

tons of water vapour every year is

recycled pop into the atmosphere from

the Amazon that rain and that moisture

then feeds the agriculture that Latin

America needs on a great big low-level

jet that's a winds move it south from

the Amazon down into the crop lands of

South America and that's what farmers

need and it's the most incredible water

cycle that goes all the way around the

world rainforests are not so much the

lungs of the earth as its beating heart

moving heat and moisture all around our

planet
